I cannot believe that May is already over!! I feel like one month of summer is already gone. Thanks to end of semester projects, finals, and moving out of my apartment I was only able to finish 2 books this month (and hopefully a third by the time this post goes up). That's okay though because I am still 9 books ahead of schedule for my Goodreads goal of 35. Plus I plan on reading many more in June! Here are the books I read in May plus my reading goals for summer.
OPEN ROAD SUMMER by Emery Lord.
I decided to kick of my summer reading with a book about summer! This was such a cute read about a girl who goes on tour with her best friend who happens to be a mega-popstar. It is a perfect summer read.
THE WRATH AND THE DAWN by Renee Ahdieh
There was a lot of hype surrounding this book and it did not dissapoint! It took me a little bit to get used to the world and terminology, but once I did I could not put it down!
THE START OF ME AND YOU by Emery Lord
I technically have not finished this one yet (I have about 100 pages left), but I hope to have it done by the time this post goes up. While I like Emery Lord's OPEN ROAD SUMMER, I am absolutely loving her second novel. The main character Paige is very relatable and you can't help, but love all of the supporting characters. I'm glad I did not put off reading this one.
Summer Reading Goals:
When I was younger I would do the summer reading challenge at my local library, but they no longer have a program for my age group so I decided to make my own! I will even reward myself with little things like a new book or a DVD or something when I reach my goals.
Read 15 books (honestly I hope I can read more, but this sounded realistic)
I've already read 2 almost 3 so I'm off to a good start :)
Read every book by one author, that I have never read before
I'm pretty sure I'll be reading all of Jodi Meadows' books cause I've been meaning to start INCARNATE for the longest time now.
Start and finish a series.
There are several possible series I'd like to read.
Read 2 summer themed books
I've already read 1 (OPEN ROAD SUMMER) and have a few in mind for number 2.
I will not let myself "double dip" either for the last 3 challenges. For example if I read the whole INCARNATE triliogy for #2 it will not count for #3 as well.
That's it for my May Roundup and Summer Reading Goals. I'll check back in at the end of June :)
